Athletic training students meet with local orthopaedic surgeons to discuss research studies and methods for diagnosing, treating patients.

For athletic training majors at North Central College, learning extends well beyond textbooks and classrooms. Students learn directly from practicing physicians.

In addition to clinical rotations, internships and ongoing treatment of hundreds of student-athletes involved in competitive sports, athletic training students have the opportunity to meet with orthopaedic surgeons/physicians who come to campus to share their expertise.
